Are you looking for birthday wishes for friend or want to send Happy New Year Messages. We have beautiful collection of dedicated phrases.
Want to greet your French friends or offer well wishes during special occasions but don’t know how to say it in French? This article will teach you exactly what French greetings to say or write during the most important events.
Whether it’s a festive event like a birthday, anniversary, wedding, promotion, or holidays---or an unfortunate situation like a sickness or death in the family---stick with me here because I’ll be sharing with you how to express your well-wishes in French.
You can also get a copy of this list in a printer-friendly PDF format. It comes with free access to the French Learning Package. If you have previously signed up to join our mailing list, you can check the link shared to you before. The file is already there.
Let’s start with French birthday greetings. Birthday traditions in France are same as elsewhere: a cake, gifts, as well as singing of birthday songs. The birthday song is similar in tune to the “happy birthday to you” song you’re quite familiar with---but translated into French, of course.
Here are some common ways to greet people a happy birthday in French.
|Joyeux anniversaire !||Happy birthday!|
|Bon anniversaire !||Happy birthday!|
|Bonne fête !||Happy birthday!|
|Que tu profites encore de nombreuses années !||May you enjoy many more years!|
|Que tous tes désirs se réalisent !||May all your wishes come true!|
|Je te souhaite plein de bonheur en cette journée spéciale.||Wishing you every happiness on your special day.|
|Je te souhaite tout plein de bonheur en cette journée particulière. Passe une merveilleuse journée !||Wishing you every happiness this special day brings. Have a wonderful birthday!|
Joyeux anniversaire [zhwy euz ahn ee vehr seyr] and bon anniversaire [bohn ahn ee vehr seyr] are commonly used in France, but in French-speaking parts of Canada, it’s usually bonne fête [bohn fet].
Note: You might have noticed that in French punctuation, there is a space before the exclamation point. Like this !
Wondering how to greet a married couple in French during their wedding anniversary? Here are some ways.
|Joyeux anniversaire !||Happy Anniversary!|
|Joyeux ...(ème) anniversaire de mariage !||Happy __th Anniversary!|
|Félicitations pour vos noces….||Congratulations on your ______ wedding anniversary!|
|...de porcelaine||porcelain (20th)|
|...de perle||pearl (30th)|
|...de rubis||coral (35th)|
|...de diamant||diamond (60th)|
You might have noticed that joyeux anniversaire is the same phrase listed previously for birthday greetings. And...you’re absolutely right! While this may seem weird to non-French speakers, in French, anniversaire covers so much more than just anniversary; it can also refer to birthdays.
How about during challenging moments when you struggle so hard to express your condolences in French? How do you say how sorry you are for their loss?
Here is a list of French words of sympathy that you may use to condole and share in the sorrow of a grieving French person. We have added some details below to guide you on when to properly use these condolences.
|Je vous prie de bien vouloir accepter mes sincères condoléances.||Please accept my sincere condolences.||Very basic and common phrase to offer sympathy.|
|Nous vous prions d'accepter nos sincères condoléances.||Please accept our most sincere sympathy.||Highly formal. may be used to offer condolences to people you are not very familiar with.|
|Nous sommes sincèrement désolés d'apprendre la disparition de _____…||We are sincerely sorry to hear about the passing of____.||This is usually reserved for close friends.|
|En ces moments difficiles nous tenions à vous faire part de nos sincères condoléances.||Please accept our deepest and most heartfelt condolences at this most difficult time.||May be used for close/ familiar friends.|
|Je suis de tout cœur avec vous.||I'm with you with all my heart and soul.||An informal way to offer sympathy and may be used with close friends and family.|
|Nous partageons votre peine en ce moment de deuil. Nos sincères condoléances, à vous et à votre famille.||We share your difficulty in this time of grieving. Our sincere condolences to you and to your family.||This one is also a little less formal than the others and may be used between families and friends who are quite familiar with each other.|
As the song says, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. Surely you can’t miss greeting your French friends this holiday season! Or perhaps you want to "Frenchify" your holiday greetings this year. This is what you say:
|Joyeux Noël !||Merry Christmas!|
|Bonnes Fêtes !||Happy Holidays!|
|Joyeuses Fêtes !||Happy Holidays!|
|Meilleurs Voeux !||Best wishes!|
|Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année !||Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!|
|Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année de la part de…||Season's greetings from…|
|Bonne Année !||Happy New Year!|
|Bonnes fêtes de fin d'année !||Happy Holidays!|

The need for saying congratulations in French could come up a lot more than you’d expect, especially if you are traveling or moving to a French-speaking country. So here are some phrases you can use to congratulate someone for general situations.
|Félicitations pour… -||Congratulations on…||standard congratulations|
|Nous voudrions te féliciter pour…||We would like to send you our congratulations on…|
|Bien joué.||Well done.|
|Nous savions que tu pouvais le faire.||We knew you could do it.||Usually used with family and friends|
|Je veux vous féliciter.||I want to congratulate you.|
|Chapeau !||Hats off to you!||This is an informal idiomatic expression that works similarly as with its English counterpart but may seem a bit old-fashioned.|
|Bon travail !||good work!|
